Jen Lancaster's coming to town; win her new book



Jen Lancaster ("Bitter is the New Black," "Pretty in Plaid") began her literary career as a blogger blessed with an acerbic sense of humor.

She's now a New York Times bestselling author who writes about fashion obsessions, losing weight and her slovenly existence as a reality television addict.

On tour with her new memoir, "My Fair Lazy" (NAL Hardcover; $24.95), she'll be at Barnes & Noble at Birkdale in Huntersville, 7 p.m. Friday May 21. Piece of advice: Arrive early. Her visit last May drew several hundred fans.

And did you say you'd love a copy of her new book? I've got one to give away. Leave a comment on this blog with your name, or some way to identify you, not just "anonymous." I'll randomly pick a winner and post your name on Monday, May 17.

Very excited about her new book, the rest have all had me laughing out loud-she takes snark to a new level!

LOVE her books. Every one has made me crack up! "How did Jabba the Hut get into my bathroom and why the **** is he wearing my pearls?" Classic!

I have read all of them and looking forward to reading the new one!

I'm fairly certain Jen and I were seperated at birth. I simply adore her...

As an unrepentant blogger needing to lose 15 pounds before my high school reunion (which, after a couple of Scotches, I stupidly agreed to organize), all the while slogging through the aftermath of divorce after 20+ years of marriage, I'm looking forward to My Fair Lazy. And if it's free, all the better. (Although it was those free Scotches that got me in this reunion fiasco ...) Thanks!

I would dearly love to have a copy of Ms. Lancaster's latest book, especially since I will not be able to attend her booksigning, due to a work scheduling conflict...
